5-0 out of 5 stars The best choice for Araki's work
This is the best work by Araki I know.

4-0 out of 5 stars Artistic Erotic Japanese Bondage and Tokyo Street Scenes
The images in this book, all Black and White, consist of erotic nudes, mostly Japanese bondage, some Tokyo street scenes, and some still-lifes. The photos are well composed, well lit, and highly artistic.The nudes areall highly erotic, but their lack of subtlty actually takes something awayfrom the eroticism.Still, they are better than most erotic images inphoto books today.The Tokyo street scenes are most interesting and Ibelieve they make this book worth buying. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Bitter Fruit indeed
From virginal Eden to lascivious lavatory, this frightening photo-document exposes the moral corruption in its most vivid form. Consider yourselves warned!

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy Halloween in Hell!
"Long live the new flesh!"This quote from David Cronenberg's cinematic playground of perversion, Videodrome, announces the theme of Torture Garden, the inimitable London nightclub established in 1990.Weare not allowed to categorize it as simply a fetish club, because it is"multi-dimensional, ever evolving and mutating."One way to geta handle is to peruse the strict dress code on its website.Your lookbetter be: burlesque, fantasy, theatrical, period costume, glamour, drag,alien, cyborg, cabaret, mutation, cybersex, fetish, SM, body art, rubber,leather, PVC, or uniforms.Sounds like the East Village on a Saturdaynight.

You take the Angel Tube to get to the current site of TortureGarden's monthly parties.You really do.These partygoers don't engage inmuch actual BDSM play, although there is some walkabout bondage.It'smainly a Stand and Model venue, a nightclub/dance scene.There's no roomto swing a cane anyway.There's a floor show by some of the top out-thereacts in the world.There are performance photos here of (among others)Miranda Sex Garden, the Genitorturers, Ron Athey, Medieval Magick, andAngel Grinders & Chainsaws, who use industrial equipment to sendfountains of sparks gushing from the groins of troupe members.

Theproduction package of Torture Garden, the book, is superb.Chaplin'scandids capture the feverish ecstasy of a world where nothing is true andeverything is permitted.They are brilliantly grouped and sequenced. Sivroni's mostly larger format portraits bring you face to face with folkin costumes far beyond fabulous, exuding the potency of their homemadepersonas.The Videodrome quote above is one of many at the bottom of everypage.These provide a quick, painless introduction to the TG philosophy. A few favorites:

"...sadomasochism enjoys all the forms of religiouspiety - kneeling, praying, worshipping, sacrificing, invoking andpunishing." -- Terence Sellers, The Correct Sadist

"The firstduty of man is to become artificial." -- Oscar Wilde

"The bodyis both a pleasure palace and a torture chamber." -- Charles Levin,Body Invaders

"It's your body, play with it." -- Fakir Musafar,Modern Primitives

"Your body is a battleground." -- BarbaraKruger

At Torture Garden, the concept of costume is raised to extremes ofcreative imagination, transcendent otherness and disgusting repulsion.Bythe time you get through this volume, your own definitions of thesecategories will have been severely mangled.On one night a performer namedFranko paraded through the crowd on crutches, accompanied by a nurse.Hewas nude except for syringes, catheters, rubber tubes and various medicalreceptacles containing various bodily fluids.On the same night,completely independently, a female partygoer appeared wearing a brassiereconsisting of two plasma bags filling with her own blood.

One man'sfeatures are covered by a remarkably lifelike effect of the flesh of hisface pulled back and nailed to his skull.Hellraiser-style pinheadsabound.Crazed male ballerinas, harem girls, rubber boys, sirens, harpies,transvestites, androgynes, hermaphrodites, naughty nurses, naughty nuns,naughty Nazis, welder's goggles, gas masks, catcher's masks, nine-inchnails, helmets, horns, spikes, wounds, rings through everything and to topit off, a spitting-image Laurel and Hardy.Happy Halloween in Hell! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars a truly great book by a wonderful artist
doris kloster's one of the most interesting personas and artist in the erotic photograpy fild, her on going dialog with porn, art and the femal body contininues in this book. it's very hard to explain a photo, but hers are cold, stylish inoveting and proffessional enough to be both highly artistic and very sexualy arousing as well.

the book itself showes a large number of very well printed black and white photos, with a beautiful cover, the images runs from very explicit nudes to insinuated sexual mathaphors, it's great both as a sex book and as an art book.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed how I think about erotica!
My best friend gave me a copy of this book, and I thought, "Hmmm."I've never before found visual erotica that I truly enjoyed.As a kinky feminist, most of the naughty images I've been exposed to that turn me on sexually have also turned me off politically.Not true of this work! There are few artists in this world who aren't afraid to step outside the boundaries of the expected, and Kloster is one of them.It was lovely to encounter images of women of different shapes, sizes, and ethnicities in porn.It was even better to see work that doesn't use the same five shots over and over again.You know what I'm talking about, right?Open a man's porn magazine.We have the blond, large-chested,woman with a vapid smile on her face wearing a sexy outfit, then topless, then nude, then masturbating, then a close-up of the genitals.Boring!Kloster isn't afraid to be different, and it shows.
Always before with porn, I felt that the male gaze was part of the picture.It was as much a part of the creation of the image as the lighting or makeup, and I didn't like it.I've often had the feeling that women portrayed in erotica were putting on shows for men, rather than just enjoying themselves.It's something in their body language.A certain degree of self-consciousness, perhaps?For whatever reason, that phenomenon was missing from this artwork.The women seemed natural, comfortable, at ease, and it deeply enhanced my enjoyment of the work.(Maybe porn made by women really is different!)
I would also recommend this book as artwork, besides just being sexy.Kloster's sense of style and photographic composition is very much in evidence, and she's definitely avant-garde, willing to toy with our expectations.
I never knew that I could enjoy visual erotica.Now that I know that work this wonderful exists, I'm on a hunt for more!

4-0 out of 5 stars How to explore your desire
Kloster in "Forms of Desire" give us all the beauty and sensuality of Fetichism. Divided by themes, all different forms of love and sense are represented by situations where the woman is the focus. She usesblack and white photos to increase our fantasy. All the forms of desire areallowed and Kloster show us a range of them bringing to the reader thechoice. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece
For those uncertain or unfamiliar with such subject matter, I offer this: "This is a book of beautiful photographs of beautiful women in exotic and strange attire."

For everyone else, I need not preach to the choir.You know what to expect from Goedde and he delivers.This is a classy and well designed book containing beautiful erotic imagery.

An excellent first book for anyone new to such things, whether interested in the lifestyle or simply because the clothing is lovely and evocative.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than fetish
Goedde does not attemt to be a "fetish photographer."He is simply a good photographer who occationally shoots photos that can be considered "fetish."These pictures are full of atmosphere and life, and will draw you in if you let them.Do not be fooled by the title, but be pleasantly surprised by the beauty within.

5-0 out of 5 stars steve diet goedde- the beauty of fetish
the beauty of fetish is a colorful fixation on the female form. each picture captures a private moment of sexual individuality, the charms of 6 inch heels, the caress of warm latex, the cinch of a corset. you will not find grim bondage shots, or overly propped scenes. this is an artistic view upon heavenly creatures, forever captured for erotic history. if you like erotica, punk rock, and gorgeous girls, this book is for you. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Japanese Sculpture!
This is fetish photography.However, its not in the style of the excellent 'Generation Fetish,' but rather different.It presents bondage images of female Japanese women injured (in some cases from real events such as Motorcycle acidents - others are studio recreations).The idea of bondage comes from the medical bonds that have been placed upon the subjects - Should situations that are intended to heal become a sexual thing?The bandages and casts, that in the black and white photography vividly stand out as symbolic white bonds - allow one to explore where the boundries of fetish excess lie.None of the imagery is gratuitous but does raise the question of guilt and feminists may argue that that it is the optiomy of the 'male gaze.'Eitherway the product confronts the audience and questions the moral boundry of sexual arrousal - Whether you enjoy it or not this is fantastic!

3-0 out of 5 stars The Aesthetics of Injury
I received this volume as a gift, given by a friend who knows my interest in forensic and fetish photography.The subtitle is `A Medical Art Diary 1993-1996,' but it is actually a difficult book to classify.It is composed of 100 plates, most of which are of bandaged women in various stages of mild undress.They are either wandering around Tokyo, in hospital rooms, or at home.There are some additional contextual shots of scenes in the city without the obligatory bandaged woman.

I am tempted to leave it at that.There is no doubt that this is fetish photography.The liner notes write of Slocomb's vision of Tokyo as `a city seething with undercurrents of violent fantasy, fetishism and bondage.'What gives me a problem is that Slocombe's images lack the kind of intensity that I would expect in this kind of photography.If anything, the bandaging de-sexualizes the women, unlike true bondage, which over-emphasizes sexuality.

The printing style emphasizes this difference.All but the cover are in black and white, and are a bit soft in tone and focus.Composition is very offhand and snapshot-like.The overall effect is almost ethereal and bloodless.It's as is we are living in a dream, but one that lacks a story line.I find myself intellectually understanding the implications of the photographs, but totally lacking any visceral reaction.

If I were to attack the same problems, I know I would do it differently.I would strive for some element (other than the mere presence of bandaged women) to focus the viewer and provide continuity over the range of images.Slocombe's choices are interesting, but I do not find them compelling ...

Gynoids Reborn
by Hajime Sorayama
Average Customer Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars
Paperback (01 June, 2000)
list price: $49.95
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

5-0 out of 5 stars Sorayama's "techno remix!"
When THE GYNOIDS first appeared in 1992, it was at the time the single biggest turning point in the evolution of Sorayama's artwork.Up until that point he had infused his strikingly realistic techno-fantasy art with an eroticism that was subtle but powerful.THE GYNOIDS was the most explicit thing he had done up until then, taking his fusion of man (and woman) and machine and adding a most overtly sexual outlook to it all.Unfortunately, due to Japanese censorship, the book was only available in a ludicrously bowdlerized edition that blocked out all explicitness through the clever placement of typography.

In 1999, Japan lifted many of the censorship restrictions governing pictoral material.Rather than simply reissue GYNOIDS in an unexpurgated version, the publishers have gone several steps further:

* All of the art in the original GYNOIDS book is presented here without any ceonsorship at all.

* Many new pieces of art have been included, some never before presented in any form.

* In many cases, some of the works have been redone or "re-engineered," sometimes to make them even more graphic.The original versions and the "remixed" editions are presented within the same volume.

* The whole book has been redesigned from the ground up, with a spectacular chrome-steel cover and new internal layout.

In short, this is more than just GYNOIDS II; this is essentially a whole new work.If you already own the original GYNOIDS, then having this is indispensible; if you don't, then you can pick this up without feeling guilty about not owning the original.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Sorayama is how he makes the most outlandish material seem instantly familiar and comfortable.Many people find his artwork to be the sign of a sick mind, or someone who has an axe to grind against women -- an easy and cheap formula for people who only see the surfaces. Level One viewers will say this art is repugnant. Level Two or deeper viewers will understand that it's as much ABOUT our repugnance as it is a testing of it.

This is probably not the best volume for newcomers to the Sorayama fold. Best to start with the relatively restrained "Sexy Robot" books (I and II). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Erotic painting at its best
If you know and like Sorayama's work, this book is a must. The size and the printing quality are very good and this is essential to really appreciate his work. There are very different works and of course some are (meant to be) shocking, but if you are looking for a "hot" book, this is one to buy !

5-0 out of 5 stars My introduction to Hajime Sorayama
I purchased this book a few years ago and was blown away.I paid more for it than the price here but it was well worth it.Some of my friends find some of the images shocking but they still enjoyed the book as a whole.I have books by other artist who do airbrush work but no one has made me reach for the page just to make sure that the image I am looking at is not real.If you enjoy airbrush art and the realism that it renders this book is a must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-have for erotic & bondage art collectors
This is a MUST HAVE book for erotic or bondage artcollectors. Sorayama's work is simply amazing. His imagination andattention to detail are incredible.

There are many very explicitimages. Many pictures contain wild and creative bondage; others have unusual piercings displayed in unique ways. A lot of the piercings are in very intimate places. A few women hold whips.

Some of the other subjects include mermaids, women with snakes & other creatures, women in water, ponygirls and women urinating. Though some pictures contain metal work, there is less in this book than previous ones.

My only wish for this book is that the pictures were all contained to one page. In my opinion, much of the artwork was somewhat distorted by being spread across two pages. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The Medium is the Message
Those who purchased TOKYO SEX UNDERGROUND by Romaine Slocumbe probably expected a titillating photo expose of the raunchy side of Tokyo at night.The majority of the reviewers listed above were clearly disappointed by what was admittedly a grainy set of pictures of women who seemed unwilling or unhappy about being included.The reviewer for Amazon.Com called this book 'stunning.'Stunning is not the right word although I saw a running theme that the other reviewers may have overlooked.What I did see was not porn although some of the women were porn actresses.The collective image that built over over the course of the pictures was one of sadness and distress.The smiling colorful face of the model on the front cover was obviously a marketing ploy, and I realized that even before I bought it.What interested me was a call for help that I could sense from nearly each woman.The harsh nightlife of Tokyo sex women can not be materially different from women employed in any other sex capital of the world.The stereotyped image of prostitutes as glamorous comes mostly from Hollywood sanitized versions of celluloid hookers like Julia Roberts.The women in this book truly were pretty women, but they were sadfaced women too.The scarcity of accompanying text accentuated rather than hid this subtext of women caught in forces beyond their ken.It is not likely that any reader seeking arousal will find such feelings here.What he might find instead is the more sobering realization that the sex industry is shiny only on the exterior, and even then the grim faces of the women pictured give the lie to that canard as well.

2-0 out of 5 stars Give this guy his pencils back!
Like many of the reviewers for this type of book, I too am not interested in the subject of Japanese pornography because of any personal sexual proclivities - I am merely RESEARCHING the sexual ethos of the Japanese male.I might even write something about it some day.
Mr. Slocombe is, in all seriousness, a truly gifted illustrator but his photography is not compelling.Unlike many of his other projects, the concept for this work is nothing new so it's not worth getting just because of a fascinating main idea.Some of the B&W "snapshots" (it's all B&W) are interesting in that they document the environment these women work in but none are compelling or exciting.The photographer adds nothing of value to the scenes captured and often detracts.As another reviewer stated, the subjects more often than not look like they don't really want to be photographed and I doubt he was trying to capture that feeling (or to raise the issue of photographers affecting the subject or shame at being involved in the sex industry) because about a third of the photos don't have that type of atmosphere at all.Whatever his idea was, he should have drawn it.

1-0 out of 5 stars underwhelming
I'm not sure whom these people are who are calling this sorry excuse for a book a masterpiece, but, let me tell you, it's far from. First of all, the photos are poor, grainy, amateurish, rather than stark and beautiful. The reader is given no frame of context. Instead of a book of pictures telling a story, you're given a lot of random images, which apparently aim to get by on shock value alone. Problem being, if it is your desire to see these types of images, you can probably find them somewhere on the Internet for free, with better photography and better sense of place--and in color. Therefore, Tokyo Sex Underground fails on that level. It offers nothing we haven't seen before. My hope from this book was to learn something about a world that I would probably never see, to get the sense that I'm a voyeur in a place I could never have access to. Instead I felt like a sucker who just wasted money on cheap, crappy pseudo porn. Honestly, I saw more Tokyo sex underground wandering the streets of Shinjuku. It was far more interesting and I didn't have to drop 16 bones to see it. ... Read more

Disappointing:- very bad quality reproductions of Wllies drawings and photographs,they are blured and lose much of the detail. Many amateur drawings clearly not by Willie.Only good pics. are on the cover.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Inspiring Magazine
Bizarre is clearly the basis for much similar modern writing - you can see its influence in many places today.However, it is of more than historical interest; a lot of it is enjoyable reading even today, and some of the bondage pictures - even in murky black and white - are magnificent.I have been inspired and encouraged by it to lace my corsets tighter and wear shoes with higher heels.Of course, after half a century some things have changed; we would no longer encourage teenage girls to smoke or countenance cruelty to horses for example.(We might not even want to encourage the caning of children, but in modern society ill-treating horses is probably considered a worse sin!)However, if this sort of thing appeals to you, buy these books.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the curious, for the informed....
.... I would suggest you pick this up any way you can. As Eric Kroll says in the intro to the books, John Willie was one of the pioneers in fetish photography and drawing. Now everything comes off well, but a lot does. Even more interesting though are the letters that Bizarre received over the limited time that it was in operation. A constant source of interesting ideas and points of view.... ... Read more

As an erotic photographer myself, I dont see too many of my peerswhose workIdcross the street to see. Or whose work I would say even "moves me". ButforSantinerossId run across the street. His haunting imagesthat showcasefemalians wrapped in gauze or nakedand clothed merelywithangels names written upon them,are really some of the the most original images Ive seen of late.You cant really puthis art ina "slot" which is what makes people shy away from some artists and I think this is one of the things thatwill hurt Santineross in the long run as they will try and slot him in with Witkin. His stuff is really more erotic and more glamourouslybeautiful than Witkins imagery. Give this book achance. Youll be happier for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars John is an amazing talent...
I happen to have had the chance to visit with John int he studio where most of this was shot - and I must tell you that the sense of reality you see in his art is present in John's daily life.

The book is an amazing addition to your collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Enter if you dare...and be welcome.
John expertly shows his ability to turn the most mundane of objects intoan absolute feast for the senses.With anything from baby dolls tobirdcages, fruit to frogs, coffee tables to coffins; he paints a picturethat is at times both unsettling and comforting.It brings to theforefront of our minds the dark thoughts and fears that lay within eachperson upon this planet.However, it also shows in tasteful elegance thatsuch is the way we are all made and there is always a desire for what isconsidered "forbidden".Victoria's poetry adds to the ambiance and effectby providing a written "map" in this journey of the soul.It was my honorand pleasure to read this book and I hope for and expect many more visitsto this magical place, compliments of this duo. ...

Very informative, although perhaps a little too monotonous. It is well laid out and is sure to give you many "wow" moments. May not be suited for the weak of spirit.

4-0 out of 5 stars With a turn of the screw, this review is for you
With The Instruments of Torture, Mr.Kerrigan has written a superbly informative and gruesome journey into the hellish world of torture. He illustrates his book with nightmarish visions of a world gone mad! The author's text is both well researched and entertaining. This book ranks with Innes's History of Tortureand Farrington's History of Punishment and Torture. Only John Swain's masterpiece The Pleasures of the Torture Chamber ranks higher!

5-0 out of 5 stars A real pick me up
This is the kind of book that makes me break out in warm shivers all over the place.Me and my gay lover, miranda, love to use this book for inspiration when our sex life gets bogged down.The pictures are informational and simply drawn, and the "how to" section is a must read for your typical sado-masochist who loves to try new things.I strongly suggest that you try the "Roundhouse of Doom" with your next (...) of blood, pain and violence.So, if you like to dress up in stiff leather vestiments and whip your mate, this is definately the book for you. ...
